"There's going to be three waves about that happen tonight. And tomorrow and leading up to the next couple days the first balanced that are gonna be counter all mail in ballots so expect the democrats have a major jump and that tonight but that doesn't mean it's over. The second wave of ballots are going to be people that have voted in person today or they went and dropped off those meal and ballots. Third wave is going gonna be people that meld in their ballots today or a few days before election day so could be short. Night could be a long night. It's always looked now. I believe this thing is razor close. I believe that there is a silent californian voter ready to rise up against the new regime recalls tricky.

I didn't think that it really stood real chance. All of a sudden the energy behind the recall movement exploded it was a true grassroots movement. Outpouring i mean you're seeing it in in liberal enclaves strongholds like santa barbara you're seeing it and coastal communities you were seeing massive crowds gather local communities getting together and in ways that i hadn't seen in california in a long time.

"And then you know, And in Milwaukee, also, you had you had seven precincts and bother you could you definitely should ask Governor Scott Walker, whose campaign by the way I worked on his first governor race. Which is kind of interesting, But anyway, there were seven precincts in Milwaukee County. They had excess of 100% turnout. Okay, there's the type of stuff that normally happens in Philadelphia. And Detroit. You know, Mork. It's seven precincts where and you know when they when they did the numbers and stuff, something like 900 excess votes. Her precinct. So comes up with something like 5000, both in just seven presence in the southwest side of Milwaukee. Healthy itself. You know, a bunch of rats were obviously relying on your assessment this morning as you're calling in, But when you talk about that date, I did see some rejection. Some pushback on the idea that more voters had voted, then registered in Wisconsin because that some people were using old voter registration data in order to make that argument and not current registration data. Also, Wisconsin has same day. Registration so that would actually play into this. Are you confident and those numbers like Where do you get those from you? Just to correct. You row quick. I'm not. Yeah, I'm totally familiar. There's some people that thought there was 3.1 Million registered voters know it's not 3.5 year, right? It comes up to 90% not talking statewide. I'm talking about seven precincts and Milwaukee County. For example. Just seven precincts, for example, had more than 101 100. Percent of the registered voters. And in addition to that, the other point you're bringing up over here. When they really looked into the same day voting. They estimated the amount of people that 3.1 million that asked. You did vote out of the 3.43 point five registered Out of that you would have had to have 900,000 new registrations that day again, which is impossible. You've never had anything close to it. You know, I think normally same day registration we have at the most 300,000 in every election. And again. I was looking at this whole analysis of this two in the morning when they were really breaking this down because his late breaking all this stuff. Right, you know, and being from Wisconsin. Look, I know you're running out of time itself with Governor Try to look up. This researcher equips. You can ask him more specifically about it. But this is ridiculous would happen with Scott. There's no way you get 90% turnout. You just do not. You know, it was like 3.15 million voted out 3.5. It comes up like 89% 90% something like that. It's ridiculous. Rafael. Thank you so much. We appreciate you joining us from Wisconsin living in Florida. Listening to W E. Gotta love it right fail. Thank you. So have a have a great day..

"So he went back to his board and This is my interpretation of what occurred but he went back to a sport and they were like, why don't you fighting against this Michael Bell Guy and everything and he brings this debt and he goes to believe the message said he's calling for is correct. And so I will tell you that politicians were scared to death about this thing they thought they were going to assist Michael Bell and then be labeled as anti law enforcement and Jim Palmer pretty much had to go into every single legislator's office at our capital. And tell them that if you vote for this measure, it's okay because we believe in this with a lot of hard work and continued pressure, I took out a full-page at USA Today calling attention to the situation and see and Kenosha with what happened to my son. We were able to have a unanimous vote in the Senate. Unanimous vote in the House and Governor Scott Walker signed the first law of this nation. It's tight. That any law enforcement involved fatality cannot investigate themselves in the state of Wisconsin and that only dealt with law enforcement itself. It didn't go into the into the jail system, a prison guard or something like that, and you're involved with fidelity that has not that has not come up, but any involve Italian. So that's pretty much. My back story for you listeners on fire way questions for. Not. Listen to that. That was great back story. Thank you very much. I'd like to know more about any type of negative pushback. Unfortunately, law enforcement can be notorious for extra-judicial. How to say I know just the but what kind of negative pushbacks did you get? I actually have a very interesting file about the negative pushback that I received. Law Enforcement Officers. Like the kid got what he deserved, who was nothing more than human feces and. That type of thing. And then there was some intimidation factor is trying to go on They would take a squad car park it out in front of Michael's Mother's house. She would like here you know they they killed my child in front of me. And now they're sitting out in front of my squad in front of my house and a squad car for. An hour or two hours the officers that actually were involved at called her and told her told her about that. In addition to that wasn't that much longer I had gone and spoke in front of the police and fire commission hearing connotion. The officer that actually shot Michael Confronted me in a parking lot afterwards, and it just so happens that every time I made a public talk, I would always take a microphone. So that way we will be misquoted and I stuck a microphone in my pocket and it was it was live and the officer confronted me about killing Michael and I had a hidden investigator and former police officer working for me at the time and he saw me speaking with this officer and he took out. His video camera. So he was able to get forty five seconds the video, but I got eight and a half minutes of recording, and if any of us are interested if they go to Michael Bell about fall, that conversation has been made into a about an eighteen minute documentary to show how things occurred and I know of no other place in the nation where the an officer confronted the father of a man that he killed and that conversation was taped record and then made into a video. So I think you'll find it very compelling. I did go to Michael, Dell?.

"Is the toll free number four, wd EVI and believe we have Jason on the line from Burlington Good Morning Jason. Hey, thanks for taking my call. Sure Kim I watched the effort last year to get paid family leave passed in Vermont and from the outside and somebody who doesn't follow state politics too much. It kind of looked like the Senate and the house were tripping over each other and couldn't figure out how to work together to pass something that everybody clearly wanted and I think. About I'm looking for a candidate that's going to give us. Leadership. That actually focuses on goals and doesn't get stuck in what looked like a whole lot of politicking. I was kind of disappointed watching how that all unfolded? Can you talk a little bit about what happened there and why we didn't get paid family leave last year when it looked like everybody wanted it. To Ash. Yeah. Sure. Thing. Jason You know it's it's worth. Remembering that in two thousand eighteen. the speaker and I working with leadership and the committees on both sides, the House and the Senate. Did Pass paid family leave bill and the minimum wage bill both of which were vetoed by Governor Scott Twenty eighteen. So in two thousand nineteen, we came back and we thought well, we can't quite do the exact same thing because we know where that landed last time and there's no question we struggled to figure out what the sweet spot was and in the final negotiations, we had three members of the Senate senators, Michael Iraq in Beca balanced and Alison. Clarkson has our negotiating team. They were trying to find the sweet spot on the paid family leave bill in the minimum wage bill and. You know the the the it just didn't come off the pressure at the end of the session There were of both sides who were dissatisfied with the others position and it didn't come off and so the speaker and I right after the session ended we got a regroup said. The moment we come back. We gotta get these things finished. We were like here his wits away and right out of the gates we passed both the paid Leesville and the minimum wage bill on the minimum wage bill did override the governor just barely and on the paid families bill we had marshalled veto proof majority on our side of the house. a couple of people who had we had thought would vote yes. Flipped and voted no and so they missed it by one. So you know in two, thousand, nine, hundred, the end, the session obviously as any leader, you take responsibility for when things don't go your way but two times with pass paid family leave three times I think we have voted for minimum wage and I'm totally confident that in twenty twenty, one paid family leave will become the law of the state. And Are you expecting those a possible another gubernatorial veto twenty, twenty, one I if governor Scott is reelected. Well. It obviously depends on who the governor is and and whether the attitude of governor Scott if he is reelected changes at all you know. There was always time for people to revisit their positions. Governor has said he's not opposed to paid family leave. He did not like the mandatory nature. We of course argued that if it wasn't mandatory, the system would collapse very quickly under its own weight. So the real question is a few of the House members. Who voted no on whether to override the governor Will they get unseated? In their own districts and a few people have competitive primaries largely as a result of that vote and we'll some other people say you know what Kobe has helped explain why this is so critical for people and my earlier opposition is GonNa flip. So I believe either the governor will revisit his position or more likely that last House vote if necessary can be attained either through. The primary process or power persuasion based on the covert experience. and. The A lot of Vermont's rural hospitals were. In hurting and financial shape before the covid crisis hit and wondering what do you think healthcare will look like in should look like in Vermont in twenty. Twenty five. Well I think from the hospital point of view you know it. It's absolutely true that the smallest hospitals in Vermont and we have a number of small hospitals are facing serious financial pressure some of it I won't get into the gory weeds of how Medicare pays more rural areas where there's higher percentage of Medicare people that puts specific strain on them. But I really think you know the idea of some kind of global budgeting so that a small community hospital knows how much money it has to work with on a predictable basis in doesn't have to go out and try to find a profit center so that it can and the year in the black each year the current. Health care. Reform efforts in Vermont. They try to achieve that result by slightly more complicated measure but I think if we can get to a fixed budget with a growth rate that's reasonable for monitors to pay that will put those providers in good standing but I also want to make sure we're not forgetting about everybody from dentists to mental health professionals the organizations that serve people with substance. Abuse. Disorders. independent physicians all. Those. Practices. Face. Similar pressure and in some ways as we come to more appropriately view health from the from the preventative side of things we have to make sure that we don't let the preventive practices fall by the wayside in order to prop up the most you know well resourced hospital..
Kid Press Conference with Governor Phil Scott
"Peter Hirschfeld Nice to talk with you. Good to talk with you Jane and I have to tell you I'm so excited to hear what questions the kids are going to have the governor today. Yeah me, too. I hope he's prepared. Can you explain just first of all what a reporter is and generally what a reporter does! We have pretty fun jobs. I have to admit because we spend all day learning about things that are happening in our towns in the state in the country, and even the world sometimes, and then we write stories based on what we've learned so that we can get people information that in some cases might be really important to them. In order to do that job, we have to be kind of like collectors of information. And sometimes we collect that information by reading things like government documents for example sometimes we get information by talking to people like legislators or mayors or the governor, people in our communities or sometimes expert who can help us understand different topics that we might not know that much about sometimes we get information just by going to places and watching things like a select board meeting in a local town or going to the State House to watch committees. They're make big decisions. or maybe going to to something like a protest is to learn more about what people are upset about. We have what we call a representative democracy in the united. States in that means we elect people to Serb government, and they make really important decisions about how our society is going to work and reporters tried to do is get people all the information. They needed so that they can decide whether their government is doing a good job. And sometimes when reporter learns about things that maybe aren't going so well. It allows the people who read their stories to. Ask and demand changes and improvements. Can I highlight one word that you said because I to just make sure we're clear on this, you said reporters write stories. This is not the kind of story that is fiction that is made up or not true. What a reporter does has to be based on fact so when you say you write a story, you're writing something that incorporates what you've heard from other people what you know to be true and what you have found out. You're not making things up, and you're not really sharing your opinion. What's the difference between factual reporting and just telling someone what you think about something? Yeah, that's exactly right Jane, so this isn't the kind of story that you would read in a picture book for example or A novel. That is fiction What reporters are doing? Is discovering facts and information, and then just using those facts in that information in the stories that they right so even though we call them stories or not, the kinds of stories you might find. In! Some of the books you read it school. One way I like to think about it is. There's a big difference between I. Think and what I know and reporters stick to telling people what they know. Bar Job is to give the public facts and information so that they can make their own opinions about things. Get an example of something that's happening right now. Governor Scott, who you're going to be talking to assume wants to make some budget cuts next year because Vermont government doesn't have as much money coming in, but a lot of legislators that work in the state. House, don't WanNa make budget cuts because they say there's going to be a lot of people that have a lot of needs and budget got is when you think you have a certain amount of. Of money to spend, but then actually you're only allowed to spend a little less than that. That's right. You don't have as much money as you thought you were going to have so the job of the reporter in telling that story isn't the tell people who's right or wrong. The governor or the legislature. The reporter's job is to collect as much information as possible about their proposals explain to people what those proposals would do and what they would mean. In then explained the potential consequences of those proposals, but then lead up to other people to decide what they think is the right thing to do.

He is the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union at Chapter for Vermont based in Montpellier and the ACLU has been Has been raising alarms about what's going on in Vermont. Vermont's correctional facilities recently about the in the age of Corona virus and James. Lyle thank you very much for joining me Good Morning. Hi How you doing pretty well. How are you good so tell us you folks issued a statement yesterday give us a recap and we'll go from there Well so we've been Really concerned for for the last couple of months releasing this crisis took hold About the state's response to The prison system and the risk of an outbreak and spread of cove nineteen in our prisons and potentially spreading into the community And we remain concerned You know I think by a lot of accounts I think. A lot of people are Satisfied that this got administration Has Been Very transparent in reasonable and measured and proactive in its response to this crisis and we really do commend the efforts of so many public officials and people across the state who are stepping up. But I think there's a real contrast between that and the way that the administration is responding or not responding to the risk of of our prison system and so we've been calling on governor Scott for months to do more to reduce that risk to the people who live in working our prisons into the community at large Talk to me for a moment about what it described the risks from your perspective. What are these risks? Social distancing is impossible in prison. These facilities are known to be hot. Spots you know I think last month. The single biggest source of covert nineteen infections in the country was a jail. And we've already seen one outbreak in Vermont in the Saint Open Sicilian which I think is now up to sixty three positive tests at last count. That's more than any other single places. Vermont other Burlington And so you know. We're calling on the administration to essentially do three things to utilize broader testing strategies to proactively test. Everyone these facilities To pursue all reasonable and viable options for safely reducing the prison population. Again because social distancing is impossible in these chevy few people in there as possible and then thirdly to be transparent about what it's doing and what is not willing to do And the administration hasn't done those things And by failing to take those steps Governor Scott has really gambling with people's lives and with the health and safety of our communities. Let's take them one by one testing. You know we've added a lot of reporting in recent weeks about how there just isn't enough testing your around in the country at large. Do you think what testing there is? We ought to be focusing on the prisons. Were get I mean. These are.

"governor scott" Discussed on CATS Roundtable
"This morning is one of the smartest guys I know. And we have with this ex-governor from Wisconsin Scott Walker. How how are you governor? I'm super you're one of the smartest people I know in or out of politics. So Burkett Governor. It was an interesting weekend politics especially in democratic politics in twenty four hours to whole world change. Bloomberg fell apart. Everybody else fell off the shelf. Tell us you know politics pretty well especially from the Mid West. Tell us how you see sings Shakya. Yeah this is just amazing. It was one of the most amazing Turnarounds particularly when you think about earned media. Joe Biden didn't have the money Bloomberg Daddy didn't have the organization attorney did but in the end you saw a really the the full force of the Democrat establishment coalesce behind Joe Biden because they were scared to death of Bernie. Sanders is as much as many of them embrace socialism. They didn't want it from a guy who's on record sympathizing with communist dictators Certainly in the past and even in some of his policies now so you saw them clear the lane They got Mayor people to check out and and Senator Amy Klobuchar or out of course. Bloomberg along the way with his two failed debate show. You really couldn't abate his way out of a wet paper bag and that opened the door for a clear contrast between Biden the more pragmatic choice of many older Democrats in the primary voting system. And of course Bernie The democratic socialist who appealed to some of the younger voters out there add in the long tradition. That Joe Biden had of appealing to African American voters. And you can see why not only did well in South Carolina but one big by any measure on Super Tuesday. This is completely turned their their nomination process. Upset out well I mean when we saw each other last week I always had a feeling that the Democratic Party somewhere orange was just gonNA screw sanders but how everything else fell. Plot was unbelievable. And we're really was and and you're right and it's one of those where this is one of the I think missing headlines out there wasn't just that the establishment got behind Biden without a doubt they were worried about losing the White House burning. But I think it's more fundamental wasn't just worries about losing the White House. It was about losing the House that really worried and all the other down ballot you saw and this is I guess. Tested the voters. They didn't just by actually spoke to voters. And voters responded. That there aren't gonNA WE'RE GONNA lose Bernie not at the top. We'RE GONNA lose all the way down in for Democrats who overwhelmingly care about the power structure. What they want is in the twenty twenty Seco-. This is the first time in twenty years. The presidential elections the same time there is a census in they know that whoever's in power at the state local level are the people who are going to set the boundaries even at the congressional level for the next decade. And that's really more than principle more than policy more than politics. This is about power for the Democrats and let's talk about the state in the Senate and Congress are People Gonna Forgive Nancy Pelosi during the vote. Democratic for Congress wedding there is a huge pushback amongst voters and a lot of these swing district and I only in the Mid West but even in Stanton Island for example in New York a New York City Newark. Stater you're and California you look in the Mid West number of seats where Republicans lost twenty eighteen in part because they lost more suburban Type voters now in the twenty twenty psycho all these Democrats who want an eighteen have to stand up and acknowledged that even though they promised they were going to get things done. They promised they re put politics instead. What you've seen is really two years under Pelosi of House. Democrats doing nothing except impeachment and I think in the end. It's why you see Democrats on the run and why you see. President trump getting unprecedented levels of of support in these primaries. Even though he has no real opposition he is getting big numbers. Bigger than Obama did at this stage of in his presence reelection. This is really a good sign. We got to counter that though and know that in the end because of redistricting because of all these boundaries being sick the Democrats are gonNA pull out all the stops. The Supreme Court is Politics Stein to hit that. Well I can't believe that I am. I can't believe it I guess. Sorry as it is but it's it's remarkable if you think back a few years ago. Chuck Schumer Being the the leader the Senate Democrats what he said about two members of the. Us Supreme Core is really unprecedented. I don't think anyone can deny that. That didn't sound like a threat to me. That's why you have three separate branches of government Certainly we can complain about Rulings But that's why you have separate branches and and that's why the judiciary is impartial. We're not elected. They're not at the federal level they're not members of parties there to uphold the constitution and the laws during acted and Regardless of who nominated them in the end. They're doing what they're supposed to do. They should actually be free of threats. But that's really where things have gone. You've gotten so out of control of that. This has become commonplace in and sadly not surprising. Scott Walker what are you doing lately? Well one of the things. We're working on the national. Republican trust the N. R. R. T. DOT. Org is where people can find more and the reason I got involved with two simple words Eric holder. I just mentioned the establishment is can't behind Biden. The reason they did was more than just the White House. It's because they're worried about losing the house and worried about long term What the next decade is going to be like. We're trying to make sure that Eric holder in his allies has grown his Gerrymandered the way into permanent power. We have fair maps. You See New York state but you see it all across the country if we have maps that keep communities of interest attack. We've constitutionally strong and concise districts are candidates can win. We've got better candidates in a better message. We just gotTa make sure they don't gerrymanders out of out of the possibility so you're working hard in that absolutely. Yeah the The N. R. R. T. Dot Org. That's the National Republican district. Trust working on some other things to try to get a bounce budget amendment enacted working with the National Taxpayer's Union and other groups But right now. One of the most critical things we can do is push back against colder. Who's been working on this for years? He Got Barack Obama to put all of his organizing for America. All of his name's funds resources into this redistricting effort. They claim in many many media outlets that the for fair maps that their own group filed with the irs a form that says their purpose their mission is favourably position. Democrats in the redistricting process. That's why they they don't fight redistricting in New York or Massachusetts New Jersey or annoy. They only go to Publican states In the end we gotta push back in a New York state. People can help out with the trust because it's a good way to force them to do. What the voters said. They wanted back in twenty fourteen that has had objective process. And they're not doing it now they haven't done in the past. And that's why we gotta be standing up and fighting back against holder and company President Trump. Your Midwest you weren't Midwest Governor. How do the Mid West farmers and feel about president trump is still supporting him? One hundred percent absolutely. He is unbelievable levels of support. Roy is again. Many of the elite particularly in the Washington bubble somehow think on trade and tariffs that there's backlash With the farming community the opposite is true. They believe that this is a and I joined them in that with. This president is fighting to get fair. Trade deals not only for manufacturers but for farmers we saw with the trade deal with Canada and Mexico under NAFTA dairy farmers not only in Wisconsin Minnesota but even in New York state. We're getting a really getting the raw ended the deal. When it came down Karaoke Canada he held out in that trade. Deal to get a better deal to level the playing field. I think when you see examples like that now what he's doing with China and other parts of the world they know that he's fighting for them and sandwich manufacturing workers. They know that he's fighting hard. This is a guy who keeps his promises. His numbers have gone up since impeachment. Because I think mid Westerners where a lot of these swing states are at midwesterners believe in fairness and they believe that. He's doing what he said he was going to do. At the impeachment is just a partisan witch hunt and Oddly Enough Democrats are going backfire with all they've done to try to attack him independent persuadable. Voters just want people who get the job done. It's why I WanNa Rico with more votes than I did the first time. I think the same thing's going to happen with the President Governor Scott Walker. Thank you for coming onto a show today and God bless you and everything you do for the American people and let's catch up again real soon. Found great keep by for freedom. Thanks man thank you. This is the catch roundtable. We'll be right back..

"That then gets vetoed by the governor. Maybe the next thing down pipeline could be something like I don't know the global warming Solutions Act as a as a way to sort of basically more veto bait. Well yeah and it's clear that Governor Scott is not too keen on this proposal. The bill was just voted passed easily in house yesterday. And it's heading over to the Senate and the Senate rarely takes a path to the right of where the houses on anything and so Looks like this is going to be some some form. Having to the governor's desk governor's been expressing big misgivings. Just seems like I've seen this movie before. Yeah and you know. Democrats will say. Well we're not GONNA legislate. According to the governor's agenda and climate change related. Doing something big on climate. Change was clearly something that the Democrats in a State House. We're going to do this year. Given sort of you know. The sense of urgency that a lot of democratic voters have brought to the table and are demanding of their elected officials. This bill would mandate the state to hit emissions reductions required levels over the coming decades. And the governor's concerned about the potential for lawsuits because this would allow people to sue the state if those emissions goals aren't met and he's also concerned about basically making this a requirement for the state before there's basically plan explicitly written out and approved. This would basically make the executive branch. Give them the task of figuring out how to get to these emissions reductions but doesn't explain or spell out exactly how you get there and that's another point of concern for him he has you know just sort of spare the details he he has supported or signal support a more moderate version of this where the lawsuits no can't can't come forward as quickly as they would under the Democratic version of the bill but I think that it's very likely that he would you know if the current form this reached his desk that he would veto the bill and it would be an opportunity for Democrats to point the governor. And say.

When I now Swede one that Tuesday night, we were up fifty seven thousand votes, and they just kept finding balance.

And we've got to do everything we can to make sure these elections are free and fair and one more. Rhonda Santa's also on FOX and friends this morning with Brian kill me. He's the new governor governor elected Florida there any doubts in the interim from election day to today that you would be at this moment. Governor elect of Florida now, I mean, the only thing better than being elected governor Florida's being elected twice in two weeks. And so we had a margin on election night. It was a close race. But it was definitive that I had one. And even with some of the votes had turned up in Broward. I mean, my margin was significant enough. We knew the machinery cow was not going to change it made it did. And then I also had competence said governor Scott would end up winning the recount both the on machine recount there.

Thank you for waiting. How are you doing? I'm doing well rush. How are you doing super duper is? This is this this is Kate Kate from Fairfield is got up before the fires. I did I long time ago. And this woman used to call me regularly back in the late eighties and Sacramento, folks. That's why it's really, hey, listen rush. And and like I say after thirty two years, it never gets old listening to you. And your chest, though, plain-speaking, I'm so appreciative. Anyway, I'm calling because I want to send a message to even the drudge report, Fox News all of them. I've stopped checking them, I they tried to get us all wound up about this Florida recount. And they wanted us to be worried. Maybe the Senate could flip back to the Democrats. They're building up all of this stuff. I don't know if it's click bait. I don't know what it is. But I wanna tell them I've stopped checking you because I just I decided I'm just going to wait until I listened to rush Monday morning and see what happens. Now, I happen to get an Email last night from one of them saying that the Senate and the and the ad doing Torah racist had both been decided and the Republicans won. But if I hadn't seen that Email, I wouldn't have checked I would have just waited to listen and find out from you what happened because I'm just so tired of them trying to get all wound up. I'm just sick of it. Absolutely sick of it. So I wanted to call you and let you know that thank you. It's a big. Thank you, Kate. I have to I'm hearing a lot of people say one way or another what you just said, I can't tell you the number of people who have stopped checking the internet or watching cable news simply because they just don't want to be inundated with. Fatalistic pessimism every day all day. And I think you're right. I think it's click bait I think I think click bait or people that do financial newsletters every subscription. Renewal period is a crisis. You never asked for renewals when everything's great. You know, why do you need a newsletter? So everybody, the tendency pessimism, this has been my point that along pessimism cells. Scaring people sells it it causes them to pay attention. Breaking the why why is every story? Breaking news on cable TV. Oh, something out of the ordinary when it isn't. It's not even new anymore. Breaking news is just a trick the way it's just a way of introducing the next story rush. And it's just it's gotten really really old and a lot of suggest we're onto it. We're onto it. And we're hanging anymore. Were you less concerned that the Democrats were going to succeed in this recount effort? And that's why you felt the luxury not paying attention now. I know I never assume that the Democrats are going to lose anything. I mean, like, you say the media, you know, if the Democrats think something's fishy than something fishy. But if the Republicans do while, they're just sore losers or whatever. No, I was concerned. But I was just not going to let them take control of of. Of my thoughts and my opinions, and my worries I just I just wasn't going to let them do it. I was just like I said just going to wait to hear from you. We know chew sweet. Well every day. I do that. You know? I appreciate it. This is by the way, this is why I tell people just do an experiment to commit to it. But try to go as many days as you can minimum five without turning on cable news without watching any news on TV. Maybe check a website here. They're just to keep tabs. But don't and I guarantee you that your mood will improve. I don't know to what extent you're not gonna go from utterly depressed and angry to orgasmic we happy.

Great TV great conversation. We hope to both back up next the Australian rabbit back and extinction back after this. And then they move onto the next thing and nothing ever gets solved and nothing is ever proclaimed as that's right and just and that's wrong. It's just the formula. And I'm telling you that you can spare yourself a lot of grief by pulling away from it. Just try it may take five days, you might be able to do it two or three anyway, Kate. Thirty two years you've been out there. And I am so appreciative of that. I don't know how to tell you. So thank you very much. It's always great when you get through here. All right. Take care.

Mainstream media had a monopoly on the news, and it was a profound monopoly three networks and all the newspapers this is far more dance. The tentacles of this monopoly are woven much more deeply into the green of our culture and society, and they are every bit as partisan as anything ever has been. They are exclusionary anything to the right. Right of Karl. Marx is obliterated is not permitted. It is it is simply eliminated from Facebook. Google search results you name it. And the impact that it is having on our culture is deleterious and because they are monopolies not just financial monopolies. Although that's true too.

Wisconsin gov.-elect won't rule out suing over bills that would limit power
"Has happened before in many a legislature Democrats. In fact, I've done this in the past two Republican governors in lane duck sessions and other states joining me now from the state capital of Madison, Wisconsin, incoming democratic governor Tony got elect Devers. Welcome to meet the presser. Running check. How are you today? I'm okay. Let me start with this. You had said you were going to personally lobby governor Scott Walker the outgoing governor whom you defeated to veto this legislation. How those talks gone have you met with them. I communicated with governor Walker over the telephone a few days ago and laid out my physician that vetoing the legislation was going to be an important thing. Not only for you to make sure that our our what happened last November the vote of the people Wisconsin is actually upheld. And we're putting people in front of politics, but also just bad legislation. And I made that made that pitch and was noncommittal, I know publicly he's said another arenas savvy plans to sign most or all of it. So I'm not particular courage to at this point in time. But it's it's around Scott Walker's legacy. He he has the opportunity to change this and actually validate the will of the people that voted on November six did you negotiate with them? Did you say, you know, what look I know x is really important to you. I get that. But what's with y and z here was there. A why did you go to? And say, look, I I really think this part is just crazy please veto that if you want to keep this. I get it. No, I I talked about a few areas that are really important that actually Republican business leaders have talked about that that would take away power imply implicate and make make economic development much more difficult in the state of Wisconsin. But the entire thing is a mess. It's a hot mess. I believe that. He should be towed. The entire package impact at least three or four the pieces that are in there. Now, he has vetoed previously. And so it makes no sense to me. He's he's been a longtime public servant. And and I and he he he has a legacy here. So we're hopeful that he will veto the whole thing. I'm curious after you were elected and quickly. We heard word that the Republican speaker and the Republican majority leader in the legislature. There were considering these bills. Did you reach out to them personally before the bills started going? And if you did what was that conversation like? Well, I I met with Robert Vaas this speaker much before those words that rumor came down the pike. I haven't had a chance to talk immediate was last minute is one of these. Here's a rumor. And here's here's the bills that have been worked on for several months. But know, Scott, you didn't won this election, which got Walker at one this election. We wouldn't be sitting here talking to you today. Is there any party, you know, one of the things that the speaker said he goes, well and hindsight, maybe we gave the governor too much power take the partisan hat off a minute. All right. I know that that perhaps many people read that comet tongue in cheek. But do you believe he's right? Well, there are things in that Bill that really had nothing to do with giving Scott Walker anything. So I don't agree with that. We have balanced power in the state of Wisconsin legislature in both sides are Republican. I'm a democrat. The attorney general's have democrat. No, I view this as completely different than the, Robin. Boy, you said, and that is that we are trying to invalidate the of the people people Wisconsin voted for because they know that I was for good schools and good transportation system and good healthcare. They didn't they didn't. They didn't elect me to fight over. Administrative powers in the state of Wisconsin vis-a-vis, the Republican majority. Now, I think this this this gets us off to bad start. I I think it's a mistake. But we we'll continue working to get the people Wisconsin to convince Scott Walker to think about his legacy and make sure that he vetos language democratic congresswoman Glenmore said the following the legislatures who injured near this coup their actions amount to a smash and grab hijacking of the voters. Will you think coups the right word here? Well, that's that's always seems seems strong. But the fact of the matter is. As I just said if Walker had won this election, and he did not I did we wouldn't be sitting here. Talking about this today. We wouldn't we wouldn't be talking. It's Scott Walker wouldn't be sitting here talking about. Jeez. They're they're trying to they're trying to balance the power here. So no, I think is directly related to the to a win by a democrat in that be me. And we need we need to have this. We need to have this vetoed. One of their rationale has been well governor like abras margins all came from two cities, Madison and Milwaukee. We have to represent the rest of the state. What do you say to that charge? And more importantly, you want a very narrow election. How do you? How do you reach across this divided state at this point. Like, it would have been a lot easier without this legislation. I'll tell you that I have reached my present job is state superintendent that's a statewide elected position. And I've reached across island all all all numbers of issue. So that's part of my DNA. I'm an educator. So I I always try to find common ground, and I'll continue to do that going forward. This just makes it more difficult. But I wanted me election anyway, you slice it. I want me election and actually narrowed some of the. The votes out state, and I've won lots of those counties out state in the past. I governor I will be the governor of the state. It was represent doesn't veto this legislation. Do you plan to sue you really think you have standards? All all all issues are on the table. I I'm not making any promises one way or the other. But we're looking at all issues all options at the table. I need to stand up for the people Wisconsin. There's two point six million people that voted in this last election, and they expect me to do that. So I'm going to we're going to pursue this governor elect, Tony abors democrat from Wisconsin. Thanks for coming on sharing your views. Good luck. When you take when he actually takes us. All right. When we come back. The one issue
Wisconsin Democrats look at legal options on lame-duck bills
"In order to ram through a series of measures that that basically decapitate the executive branch and give the legislature itself powered over an enormous number of things, whether it's agencies, whether it's making the attorney general come to the legislature, and specifically to a committee with a Republican dominated committee within the legislature. To get permission to pursue lawsuits. Whether it's settlement money potentially in in lawsuits, that's all controlled by the legislature now and then limiting early voting which is very significant because Wisconsin had record turnout in two thousand eighteen and because of early voting which the legislature had tried to cut off and then a federal judge intervened and said, no it's unconstitutional. There were enormous numbers. Wisconsin citizens who voted early and the legislature is now in both houses have passed this that they need to get together on it. But they have limited early voting to two weeks. So instead of six weeks as it was here in Dane county, where we had presidential level turn out. They're going to have two weeks. Again. It's just an effort to suppress the will of the people and to concentrate power in the state legislature. Well in terms of the limits on the governor's appointment powers. Could you get some? Go into some of the specifics of what is actually happening with some of these agencies some of them, they're actually packing with more members that the legislation would have say over. Yes. So for example, the Wisconsin economic Development Corporation, which has replaced the Commerce Department under governor Scott Walker. It's a scandal. Played agency that hands out gifts to corporations that promise to create jobs. The legislature has taken away the governor's power to appoint the head of that agency. They're still working this out. It's still needs to be signed by Scott Walker. But this is where they're going. And there was debate on it as they walked into the studio, they they plan to pack the board so that until September. And this is the recent redo this as a four o'clock this morning, they plan to pack the board with Republican chosen members. So that the governor can appoint the head of the board anymore and the Republican legislature controls the makeup of the board after September. They say it will be balanced there'll be chosen by legislators from the Democratic Party and the Republican party. But they are what they are fundamentally doing is undoing Tony Everts campaign promise to get rid of this agency altogether because it is. Handed out tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money to corporations that have failed to create jobs. I was Foxconn as well. The ex-con Foxconn, which is a big. Yeah. It's a big company that our state has given an enormous amount of subsidy money to and really is was a major issue in the campaign because it's a gigantic subsidy for this corporation that is not creating a lot of jobs and hiring people actually from Illinois. To make big split screens. I will probably be obsolete shortly. There are a number of corporations that have received tens of millions of dollars from the state of Wisconsin.

I mean, the touting of Foxconn coming to Wisconsin.

Governor Scott Walker which known for aggressively busting unions, and for his close ties to right wing dark money groups, and those are some of the headlines, this is democracy. Now democracy now dot org. The warrant piece report, I'm Amy Goodman, Juan Gonzalez, welcome to all of our viewers and listeners across the country and around the world. Democrats have seized control of the house of representatives flipping more than two dozen seats. This gives Democrats subpoena power for the first time since President Trump was elected two years ago, while the Democrats will control the House Republicans picked up two more seats in the Senate on the state level. Democrats picked up seven governorships huge turnout numbers were reported across the country. President Trump responded to the election results by tweeting, quote, if the Democrats think they're going to waste taxpayer money investigating us at the house level. Then we will likewise be forced to consider investigating them for all of the leaks of classified information and much else at the Senate level to complete that game. The terms were a groundbreaking election for women for the first time in US history. At least one hundred women will serve in the US house of representatives, including the first two native American women and the first two Muslim women later in the program. We'll hear from. Democratic socialist Alexandra Cossio Cortes who became the youngest woman ever elected to congress. But we begin today's show with two guests here in New York, Katrina, vanden Heuvel, editor and publisher of the nation. America's oldest weekly magazine. She's also a columnist for the Washington Post dot com, and we're joined by Rashad Robinson, executive director of color of change. We welcome you both to democracy. Now, let's begin with Katrina vanden who've oh your thoughts on what has taken place the house now in the hands of Democrats Republicans have expanded control of the Senate. I think taking back the house is critical is a check on President Trump. But also, I think it's important people know that a majority of the committees and subcommittees will be controlled by progressives. The progressive caucus will have about ninety members some of the women you mentioned will join and it will have thirteen committees. And I think thirty subcommittees that's important. And I think the ability to not only hold the president in the. Administration accountable on corruption on self interest on self-dealing, but the ability to lay out bold initiatives, bold, legislation may not pass with a Senate as we've seen it. But it's critical. I think that the progressive Democrats lay out in this war of ideas, that progressives have been winning to a certain extent fifteen minimum wage jobs program infrastructure, free higher. Ed. The governor's race is one spoke of critical critical both as a blue wall against the redistricting scams that we've seen from the Republicans critical also to rest back the rust belt from Trump who really did. Well, and key parts, Wisconsin. How sweet it is Scott Walker going down. I mean, my colleague John Nichols has written so much copy about this man who busted public workers assault on education has demeaned and degraded the Wisconsin idea, so I think that's critical amendment for renewed Robinson. And I were. Talking about it. One thing we've seen in this election. Amien won the barriers to democratic participation the will funded targeting voting suppression. So men men for restoring rights to ex-felons to vote one point four million Floridians will be able to vote I think is a vital step on the road to a true democracy. Statehouses? We haven't seen the numbers yet. But those will be hopeful as well flipping. I think Minnesota and a few others. So I think it was you know, it was a bittersweet night because we've seen the incendiary toxic. Nationalism xenophobia, any immigrant actions talk of this president and his enabler in the Republican party. You know, they they secured some wins. However, those who say was kinda split, let's all recall that the Senate map is the most horrific for Democrats. I mean, it's just, you know, the one third up we're really states in which the Republicans and Trump of played well, you mentioned the rust belt, and it to know that there were three states that really delivered for Trump, Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania and of the and they're those three in those three states. The statewide all Ron's either for governor or for Senate for the US Senate of the Democrats won six out of seven. So you've seen a situation now where those key states now are really not as reliable Republican as they appear to be in two thousand. One. I mean, many of those voters went for Obama in two thousand and eight and two thousand and twelve so it was that flip in two thousand sixteen that has to be looked at. And I think last night was in good insight into what is possible in twenty twenty in effect. We can talk about a twenty twenty began last night, but that's a different discussion. But I think you see it with taking back those those state houses there were some good minimum wage initiatives in states very troubling that good initiative in Washington state, the kind of carbon tax the green new deal went down. You still see the power of corporate money in our system and at the state level. There were six states that moved into total democratic contrived and the one of the New York state where the New York state Senate, which was had been very evenly divided. The Republicans control now is overwhelmingly democratic twenty three. I think is now the number in the New York state Senate win that means in terms of what can be accomplished. By progressives. Progressives won a supermajority in the Vermont house neutralizing, the newly reelected governor fill Scott's veto threat knows this. I mean, it's critical on so many levels. But historically, as you will know we've lost over a thousand state legislative seats in the last few years. So this is coming back and saying Democrats progressives are going to play at all levels, New York state. You studied you've written one? It's a major win us. See what governor Cuomo does with it because he's hid behind the inability to do much with the independent democratic conference now defeated one last race, which I think is very important one. And I were talking about is Antonio Delgado in the nineteenth congressional district that race was supercharged with toxic racist rhetoric. John Foucault has held out against good people except for teach out, but he's gone. So I think you know, it's a bittersweet, but I think real gains were made. And I think it would be wrong to. Downplay those one of the nation's most closely watched races of the year remains too close to call Georgia secretary of state Brian Kemp, holding a slim lead over democratic challenger Stacey Abrams who is vying to be the first African American woman governor in US history, but Abrams is refusing to concede because thousands of absentee ballots have not yet been counted campus currently at fifty point five percent if he dips below fifty the race goes to a runoff. The Georgia race was marred by widespread allegations of voter suppression carried out by Brian camp. Again, who is as Georgia secretary of state is in control of the elections, despite the fact many demanded that he recused himself. Meanwhile, in Florida Democrat Andrew gillum conceded to Republican Ron to Santa's after a tight race Gillam attempting to become Florida's first African American government, but faced a string of racist attacks from outside groups into Santa's who told Floridians knocked. Monkey this up and in Maryland, Republican governor Larry HOGAN was re elected defeating democrat, Ben jealous. The former head of the N double ACP or shod Robinson. You're the executive director of color of change. Yeah. I think I think these. You know, what happened last night with particularly with Andrew in Stacy's race. I think represents the way that the south is changing.
